We explore the fascinating world of aiglets and struts, essential elements in historical fashion that continue to capture the imagination of enthusiasts and contemporary designers. These small but significant details not only served practical purposes, but also reflected the status and style of the wearer.

The History of the Aiglets

Aiglets, also known as laces or metal spikes, adorned the ends of laces in medieval and Renaissance clothing. Not only did they make it easier to pass the laces through eyelets and loops, but they also functioned as fashion statements. Initially made of precious metals for the aristocracy, over time they became accessible to the lower classes through the use of less expensive materials.

Props in Fashion Architecture

Although the term "struts" may not be familiar to many, their function is crucial in the structure of historical garments. They acted as internal supports in dresses, bodices and other pieces, helping to mold and maintain the desired shape. This practice highlights the importance of the silhouette in fashion of different eras and how it was achieved through ingenious techniques.

Innovations in Aiglet Manufacturing

As time went by, aiglet manufacturing underwent notable innovations. The introduction of mold casting allowed for more efficient and detailed production of these parts. This, in turn, opened the door to the creation of more complex and personalized designs, allowing aiglets to better reflect the fashion trends and preferences of their time.

Aiglets and Props in Military Clothing

In the military context, aiglets and struts played functional and aesthetic roles. The aiglets ensured that clothing and armor fit properly, while the struts helped distribute weight evenly, improving the mobility and comfort of the wearer. These elements were not only practical, but also served to denote rank and unity within military groups.

The Symbolism of Aiglets in Society

Beyond their practical function, aiglets often carried a symbolic charge. In certain cultures, they were seen as protective amulets or symbols of wealth and power. The quantity, material and design of the aiglets could indicate the social status of the individual, making them objects of desire and envy.

Conservation Techniques for Aiglets and Props

The conservation of antique aiglets and props is a specialized field within textile restoration. Experts use advanced techniques to preserve these metal and structural elements, allowing museums and collectors to keep fashion history alive. This effort to preserve the past enriches our understanding of clothing traditions and techniques.

Aiglets and Props in Contemporary Fashion

In today's fashion, aiglets and struts find new interpretations. Innovative designers reincorporate them in clothing and accessories with a modern touch, fusing history and trend. This reinvention not only pays homage to the craftsmanship of the past, but also demonstrates the timelessness of design and its ability to inspire beyond its original era.
